New washing machine

I had to get a new washing machine.

The old one started to stain clothes with small black oil stains, or huge orange ones. These stains couldn’t be washed or bleached off. I suspected that the seals at the steel drum’s joint to the motor had worn out, hence the occasional oil and grease leak. Thank God that only old T-shirts and some underwear were stained! I’ll be so sad if one of my business shirts were stained.

So now I’m poorer. I settled for the Panasonic NA-V80 model. It’s the one with a 45-degree tilted drum for water saving purposes. There’s a dryer capability in it that uses an inverter, so it supposed to be electricity saving; and doesn’t need an air-exhaust. Mrs wanted the dryer for the long and wet monsoon seasons in Singapore when clothes won’t dry.

I have already tried it, and it uses so little water! I was worried that it wouldn’t wash the clothes clean, but it looked alright. Due to the low amount of water used, the detergent was cut down too. Now I can foresee my detergent lasting double the washes.

Oh well, the old one was more than 10 years old, and we are one step closer to environmental care. Consolations for the pain in the wallet. πŸ™‚


Ok, by special request, here’s a picture of the washing machine.

    Man … You should put up a picture of your washing machine … Sounds like one of the good things. And of course the price ….. Is it very expensive ? Sounds like it from the way you say it .But is the price justifiable from the savings that it will bring ….

    Your new washing machine looks so cute. Tilted designs are rare.

    Psst, have to be quiet, because my “Elba” washing machine can get jealous. =P

    How’s the washing machine coming along? Was thinking of getting this but not sure if its durable? Having used it for so long, is it still as quiet as when you first bought it?

      John, I’m still happy with it. It is still working and quiet. Sometimes it rattles with heavy uneven loads, but I think that’s expected.
